The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB or University) allows the following personnel, when they meet the funding entity’s requirements for eligibility to serve as a UAB Principal Investigator on externally funded (sponsored) grants or contracts administered by the University:
When a training or fellowship grant identifies a postdoctoral student (UAB employment status 20) or other UAB student as the principal investigator, UAB recognizes the student as the external entity designated Principal Investigator. The UAB mentor or person who will supervise the training and research and who (1) is specifically named on the grant or contract application and (2) meets the above requirement for a principal investigator serves as the UAB Principal Investigator.
By signing the Extramural Checklist that accompanies a grant/contract application submitted to the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), the supervising administrator (chair, dean, vice president, or provost as appropriate) assures that the named UAB principal investigator or the student with the mentor’s oversight will have access to the adequate facilities as well as provide the scientific, technical, administrative, and financial leadership required for the proper conduct of the project or program including submission of all required reports.
